Top 20 Foods That Help Gain Muscle and Burn Fat

To build muscle & lose fat, you'll need to consume a balanced diet complete with lean protein, veggies, fruits, complex carbs and healthy fats. Yes, fats. Fat is not what makes you fat, contrary to popular belief and you NEED it in order to build and maintain muscle.  Protein is another key nutrient you need to help aid in fat loss since it has a higher thermic effect than carbs and fats. This means, after consuming it, your metabolism works slightly more efficient, thus leading to more efficient fat loss.  

When you eat healthy fats, your body holds onto less fat.  Eating fats tells your body it's not in starvation mode, it's going to keep getting fat so it can let the fat you have need to store if for the winter!  Fruits and veggies are just necessary as well.  They help you recover from grueling workouts and fuel your muscles so you have steam when you get to the gym.  

Many struggle to consume all of these foods, each day, throughout the day but you really don't have to.  Just choose wisely and add foods to your daily diet that will give you each of these nutrients in the most efficient way! Information is key and knowing WHAT to eat will help you reach your goals much sooner! 

Here's a list of the top 20 foods that help you build muscle and burn fat!

1. Whole Eggs: Cheap & rich source of protein: 7g/egg. The yolk contains most nutrients: half the protein, vitamins A/D/E and cholesterol to naturally increase your testosterone levels. Don’t worry about cholesterol in eggs. Dietary cholesterol isn’t bound to blood cholesterol. If you have bad cholesterol, lower your body fat rather than throwing the yolk away.

2. Fish Oil: Reduces inflammation (joints/skin), lowers body fat and increases testosterone levels. You need 9000mg EPA/DHA per day. Since you’ll probably struggle to get that from eating fatty fish, consider a fish oil supplement. 

3. Wild Salmon: One of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids that also gets you 20g protein per 100g serving. Farm raised salmon is, however, omega-3 deficient: it’s corn/grain fed. Go with wild salmon. 

4. Berries: Strong antioxidants that prevent cancer, heart & eye diseases. Any kind works: cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, etc. Buy fresh or frozen berries and mix with oatmeal or a protein/nutritional shake. 

5. Yogurt: Contain bacteria that improve your gastrointestinal health. Don’t buy frozen yogurt or yogurt with added sugar and fruits at the bottom. Get plain low fat yogurt. Eat it with berries, flax seeds, honey, steel cut oats, fresh fruit, etc.

6. Flax Seeds: Source of fiber, protein & omega-3. Grind the flax seeds to get the most out of them. Take 1 tbsp with yogurt & berries before going to bed. Stay away from flax oil: it’s unstable and contains no fiber. 

7. Extra Virgin Olive Oil:  70% monounsaturated fats that protect against heart diseases and cancer. Add 1-2 tbsp olive oil to your salads. Buy Extra Virgin Olive Oil: it contains more polyphenols and tastes better. 

8. Mixed Nuts: Contain mono- & polyunsaturated fats, proteins, fiber, vitamin E, zinc, potassium, magnesium, etc. Mixed nuts are caloric dense, great if you’re a skinny guy who wants to gain weight. Anything works: almonds, walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts, … Peanut butter also works as long as you buy natural peanut butter without added salts/sugars. 

9. Virgin Coconut Oil:   Healthy medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil do not circulate in the bloodstream like other fats.  They are sent directly to the liver and converted into energy versus being stored as fat.  

10. Broccoli: High in cancer-fighting phytochemicals and anti-estrogenic indoles. Broccoli is also high in soluble fiber and low calorie, helping fat loss. Eat other cruciferous vegetables for a change: cabbage, bok choy, cauliflower, kale, … 

11. Spinach One of the most alkaline foods. Spinach prevents muscle & bone loss, but also cancer and heart diseases because of its high nutrient profile. Try one of my many Shakeology recipes with loads of spinach in it! 

12. Turkey: If you don’t believe saturated fat is good for you, try white turkey. The leanest beef has about 4.5g saturated fat/100g, while white turkey has close to 0g (that why it’s so dry). Eat turkey with spinach & quinoa. 

13. Quinoa: South American “king of grains”. Quinoa is higher in fiber & protein than rice or oats, tastes a lot better and is gluten free. Buy the whiter grain, it’s better quality. Eat it post workout with meat & spinach. 

14. Oats: Reduce cholesterol, provide you with low-gi carbs for energy, and high in soluble fiber. Try having it post workout. 

15. Tomatoes: High in lycopene, which prevents cancer. The lycopene in tomato paste is 4 times more bioavailable than in fresh tomatoes. 

16. Oranges: Vitamin C to fight diseases, magnesium to lower blood pressure, anti-oxidant beta-carotenes, etc. Avoid drinking processed orange juice which often has added sugars. Eat oranges or make your own orange juice instead. 

17. Apples: Pectin in apples helps weight loss by increasing satiety. Apples are also the strongest antioxidiant after cranberries (eat the peels). Unfortunately apples are one of the most pesticide-contaminated fruits too so go organic when you can. 

18. Carrots: Their huge vitamin A content improves eye-health, especially night vision. Carrots are also rich in fiber, low calorie and taste good, even raw. 

19. Water: Your body holds water if you don’t drink enough so, contrary to what you may thin, the MORE you drink the LESS bloated you'll be. Drinking prevents water retention, helps muscle recovery and prevents dehydration from strength training. Get a water filter and try to drink 2 cups of water with each meal, totaling at least 100 oz per day. 

20. Green Tea: Strong antioxidant and natural diuretic. Green tea also speeds up fat loss, prevents cancer and improves blood sugar & circulation. Drink green tea in the morning instead of coffee. 

So, to wrap this up... the key is to eat every 3 hours. Try to make a habit of having at least 2 cups water with each meal and reaching 100 ounces each day.  If you can, make a habit of having carbs in the morning or early afternoon only and, when possible, have complex vs simple carbs.  They're used more efficiently by the body and having them earlier in the day will guarantee they're burned off, not stored as F-A-T. And junk food (aka treats) are ok but NOT all the time! 85/15 rule remember!

Become a Runner in 8 Weeks!

If you've been wanting to start running but just don't know how, this 8 week training program will get you off on the right foot. After about 2 months, you should be able to run 30 minutes (about 2 miles) at a slow, relaxed pace. It's a simple, progressive program that begins with more walking than running, then gradually evolves into more running than walking. 

Once you are able to run 2 miles nonstop, you can continue to increase your running intervals until you're at the distance and pace you want to be at.  Research has shown that this is enough to help you lose or maintain weight, and improve many other important health markers (i.e., your cholesterol, blood pressure, and insulin response).

So, don't be intimidated by these programs. The first 2 miles are the hardest you will ever run, even when you're a seasoned runner. I run 5-7 miles most days and have been doing that for 10 years or so. Even now, I have the hardest time during my runs up until mile 3. 

Here are four key points to consider before you begin the 8-Week Program.

1. If you are over 40, not accustomed to any exercise, or more than 20 pounds overweight, consult with your physician. Unless you have a known health risk, your doctor will probably encourage you to begin a run-walk program, but it's always wise to check.

2. Schedule your workouts. You won't find time for them unless you make time for them. Put them in your phone calendar, computer, daily appointment planner, on the front of your refrigerator, or wherever else you keep your schedule and make them NON-NEGOTIABLE.

3. Expect bad days. Everyone has them, but they pass quickly, and the next workout is often better than the previous one. So stick with the program. Some days you won't want to run. Get out there anyway and do what you can.

4. Don't rush. In the fitness world, rushing leads to injuries and discouragement. Be patient, and go slow. The goal is to reach 30 minutes of continuous running, not to set any records getting there.


Training tip: To fuel up for your workout, have a piece of fruit or protein bar about 2 hours before you leave.  If you regularly workout and do fasted cardio, have some pre-workout and at least part of a bar. An hour later, drink 8 ounces of water to help keep you fully hydrated during your run. 


Training tip: Always walk 2 to 3 minutes for a warm up before you begin your workout, and walk another 2 to 3 minutes as a cool down afterward. Don't stretch before running when your muscles are tight. Save it for after your workout when your muscles are already warm and follow up with more stretching in the evening.


Training tip: Breathing is KEY when it comes to running endurance.  Breath in through your nose and out through your mouth and keep this consistent through your run. You'll avoid losing your breath and it helps with cramps as well.


Training tip: When it's hot out, run in the early morning or late evening if you can.  The heat and humidity will dehydrate you faster and make you more lethargic so don't be disappointed if you run a lot slower and walk more on hotter days.


 Training tip: On occasion, skip running/walking and do a different type of workout instead. Bike for 30 to 40 minutes, try the elliptical trainer in a gym, swim, lift weights, or join a circuit weight-training class. The break from running will refresh you, and you'll learn new skills while developing new muscles.


Training tip: Running is a great way to build strong bones, but you also need plenty of calcium--1,000 milligrams a day, or 1,500 milligrams if you're over age 50. Drink a glass or two of low-fat milk per day, or enjoy a cup or two of low-fat yogurt or cottage cheese. Dark green, leafy vegetables such as kale or spinach are another great calcium source.


Training tip: Beginning runners often develop shin splints or sore knees. These pains should pass quickly if you treat them immediately with ice packs after your workouts. Put a bag of frozen peas on your shins or knees for 15 minutes. If the pain persists, take several days off before beginning your training program again.


Training tip: If you can help it depending on the city or area you live in, try not to do your workouts on a busy street or during rush-hour traffic. Find low-traffic streets where any exhaust will be dispersed quickly. Ideally, try to run on greenbelts, parks, on bike trails, around reservoirs, etc. 

Like the saying goes, "Success may come quickly to you as a beginning runner, but the race is never won. Run for life."

Campfire Pizza!

Ok so this one isn't so "healthy" per say because we bought the premade Pillsbury pizza crust but it's deliscious and convenient and if you want to, you can make it healthy! This was my hubby's first shot at it when we went camping last and he wanted to do it "his" way.

Spread the pizza crust on the grill, brush some olive oil on it and cook for a few minutes with the grill open Then spread the sauce on top, add the cheese and chorizo, chicken and portobello.  Continue cooking at a low flame with the grill closed, checking it periodically and checking the bottom of the crust too. Once it's done, remove, slice and ENJOY! If you give it a shot, let me know how it goes and how you make it.  Toppings for it are endless!!  21 Day Fix container count is 1 yellow (crust), 1 blue (cheese), 1 green (portobellos), 1 orange (olive oil), 1 red (chorizo & chicken) & count 1 purple (pizza sauce) since it's got sugar in it like a piece of fruit would.
